Calgary Jewellery celebrates 60 years


Calgary Jewellery is proud to announce its 60th year as a thriving family business which offers award winning customer service and has forged an enduring relationship with the city of Calgary.

Since its humble beginnings in 1955 by Les and Dora Florence, Calgary Jewellery has established a strong reputation as a leader in the watch and jewellery retail industry.

60 years later, under the direction of their son Bernard Florence along with his sister Caroline Deutsch, Calgary Jewellery has seen considerable growth and evolved into a two-storey, 5,000 square foot boutique that houses the largest collection of timepieces in the city, exclusive international jewellery brands, bridal rings, crystal and giftware.

“We have grown the business through a combination of layers, service, style, selection as well as honesty, reliability and value. “ say Bernard.

The ability to offer maintenance services, expert consulting and custom designs by Bernard has allowed the boutique to flourish as the city of Calgary has grown; and established personal relationships with many generations of clientele.

“It’s very gratifying to see the expression of joy and excitement when a client receives their jewellery.” says Bernard. “I am fortunate to be a part of their very special moment. Their reaction speaks louder than any words.” he adds.

Calgary Jewellery is set to commemorate the milestone of 60 years with celebration events, contests, and the launch of a multi-faceted media campaign. The campaign will reflect on meaningful moments and an emotional connection to gift giving shared across multiple generations.
